Hi! You should add this to the pkgbuild:

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD
index 7a264c5..da9794c 100644
@@ -17,4 +17,10 @@ source=(${pkgname%-git}::git+

+pkgver() {
+        ${pkgname%-git}
+        # cutting off 'foo-' prefix that presents in the git tag
+        git describe --tags --long | sed 's/-/.r/;s/-/./'
 build() {
         cd ${pkgname%-git}

It will make the pkgver update automatically.

I'm getting this: $ makepkg -s ==> ERROR: license should be an array Should be easy to fix :-)

The upstream URL of this package points to a fork that is, as of now, 10 commits behind the original project (ninjudd/drip). Should we perhaps go back to the original upstream project?
